Speaking of 'Bibles', the one that I use is 'MicroSoft Access [Insert your version here] Bible' by Cary N. Prague and Michael R. Irwin. ISBN is 0-7645-3286-3 (that's the 2000 version). That book has been used so much it's dog-eared and held together with duct tape. Very good book. Another one is the Access [Insert your version here] VBA Handbook by Susann Novalis. Not as used and abused but referenced every now and then. ISBN on that is 0-7821-2324-4. You can get used ones in very good condition from Amazon.

I use Scotch Packaging TApe (Super Strength); holds it together and you can still read what's underneath! I also put it on prophalactically on all reference paperbacks! ;0)>
